Session details

Emerging technologies have been disrupting existing business models for literally hundreds of years. Think about the impact of the automated knitting machine on the English textile industry in the 18th century. Don't forget that Henry Ford's Model T put a lot of farriers and blacksmiths out of work back in 1908.

Cryptoassets and quantum information science are poised to have the same kind of transformational impact. Join Octavian Pelede on Nov 11 at 1 pm for a Fireside Chat with Christopher Bishop, (TEDx speaker, LinkedIn Learning instructor, and former IBMer) to learn more. Maybe you will be inspired to start a leading company of the future leveraging one of today's bleeding-edge technologies.
